Last Days of BC???

Post by kmr »

How much longer can Bishop Carroll hang on? With no football program already, and the always stable basketball program having players transfer out and there are rumors more are on the way what's the future for that program. The baseball program is losing 7-8 starters from this years 15 man roster. With more kids transferring out after their 8th grade year and going to public high schools how much longer can this school hang on???

Forget sports.

The reality is that BC as an institution may be on its last legs. I had heard that it had fewer than 40 graduates last year, and this year that most of their teaches had their salaries -- already low -- cut to the bone.

How can a private school exist with only about 150 students in 9-12?

What is tuition at BC?
Could Mccort field a team for football with out the Carroll kids, how many of them travel to Johnstown for football season? I would think that wrestling brings in more fans per match than the football program. And it costs significantly more to have football.

Before the birth of Mcruit wrestling there was rumors it was close to shutting down. The wrestling cronies make up half their enrollment. With all the new wrestlers at Ridge they may bump up classifications here soon.

McCort is not moving up. They are staying AA. New classifications came out and they are on the AA list. Not sure why on earth they stay AA, except to bully smaller schools around in return for the grudge they have against D6 is my guess
